      I made this for my friend to take to work for a snack yesterday and scaled it down to serve about two. Well he likes it SO much that he called me with his mouth half full saying how amazing this tortilla cheesy thingy (in his exact words haha) was! He LOVED the spice this dish had. Said the "kick" is what made this so good. Excellent recipe!

      This was overly spicy/hot. I didn't expect that much heat. I used Chorizo and a mexican cheese blend and queso blanco. I really like Chorizo but it was overpowering for a quesadilla. You couldn't even taste the cheese. I think ground beef would be plenty good for this dish - maybe with a bit of taco seasoning mixed with it. Thanks though - it was an interesting idea!
